“For ‘Life Abundant’  my paintings  are part of a series of regional paintings of forest, vineyards, wheat and lavender farms of the Tualatin Valley in Oregon.” -Jan Shield, Professor Emeritus of Art at Pacific University, Forest Grove

https://www.oregonlive.com/hillsboro/2012/02/retired_pacific_university_pro.html

Jan Shield was at Pacific University in Forest Grove for forty years, twenty one of them as chairman of the art department. His tenure is the longest of any professor in the school’s history.

 

 

“These paintings express a sort of witness to the soil becoming the grass and how plant life abounds joined in a harmony of space and form. No doubt the influence of Da Vinci’s fascination with life, the movement of water, and his brushwork called sfumato (softness of all edges) is evident in my interest in the flow and modulation of color and rich contrasts that beyond being representational. From a slight breeze in the early morning to the enclosure and stillness of the coming of late afternoon before darkness … I keep painting.”  Jan Shield

 

 


“Some of my  new work is very abstract, textural done for the pure enjoyment of itself, more expressive, experimental and highly representational  to environmental responses.”  Jan Shield

 

 

Dancing Trees Sanctuary

“It is my home, studio and forest preserve in Oregon. It is an environment of thick fir and maple forest blanketed with lush ferns and punctuated with sun lit meadows.”  Jan Shield

“For April my works are full of energy to create a feeling of the air merging with the trees and fields where from the earth they grow.  They express a sort of witness to the soil becoming the grass and how plant life abounds joined in a harmony of space and form,” Jan Shield, Professor Emeritus of Art at Pacific University.

 

“I was commissioned to create for the new Astoria Memorial Cancer Planetree Hospital/ CMH-OHSU Knight Cancer Collaborative.  A Select number of seventeen regional artists were requested to make work for the interior spaces along with Richard Rowland of Astoria to create a large anagama fired ceramic entry mural.  My painting is an acrylic on canvas, 6ft 8in by 3ft 4in related to a forest visit.” Jan Shield

About the artist.

Jan Shield, Professor Emeritus of Art at Pacific University, creates art at his Dancing Trees Sanctuary. “It is my home, studio and forest preserve in Newberg, Oregon. It is an environment of thick fir and maple forest blanketed with lush ferns and punctuated with sun lit meadows.” Through his paintings, Jan Shield shares a deep regard for Oregon. His art is a comment on naturalism, environment, light, space and at times, symbolism. The beautiful CMH-OHSU Collaborative selected art from Jan Shield to support the healing environment in their new facility in Astoria.

 

Grace note

“My husband and I were in your gallery last month and loved the art  displayed.  Our family reunion is a memory of a lifetime.  Because of this, a commissioned piece will hold special significance.  I have several pictures of the Rockaway Beach home we stayed in.  I took some pics of the rock formations, sea grass, , and rocks to give a feel for where we were.  Though the rocks were down the beach always, I would like them to show up a bit more so took a close up of them.  They don’t need to overpower the serenity of the scene howeve…”
